Tl DR: In the English language everything is pretty much gender neutral, is it okay to abuse that so I wont have to create a gender variable for the MC?
This is the first time I’m writing a story in English and one of the particularities of the language is that everything is pretty much gender neutral (unlike Portuguese) so since in my story there won’t be any differences between genders I decided to not make a gender option on the game, instead the MC is treated neutrally and its up to the reader to imagine it’s gender, however it was brought to my attention that some people want to make that choice.
So what do you think?
It’s okay to not chose as long as there isn’t anything in the writing that breaks my idea of the MC
I need to have the writing treating me like a male or female every so often in order to be properly immersed
